But before you go November, taking my cold with you please, here are the last few items on the list which helped me through...
Make a will because it's the right thing to do.
Show the people you love that yu cared enough to save them extra stress and worry by making or updating your will. A cheap kit from the stationery department (perfectly legal here in uk), a chairty - linked free session soliciotor, or if your affairs are complex an appointment with a solicitor/lawyer. We don't want to think about this, but for peace of mind we really must.
Make a point of following the rules to help others.
We isolate so that when we gather again no one is missing.
Says it all really.
Make changes to your routine so that you don't get bored.
I've done a little of this (watching less news) but am finding some routines comfortingly normal.
Make love not war
Well, of course.
Make a virtue out of necessity
Tricky one? Many have done things they had been putting off, learned a new skill, put their houses in order......In something of this vein I note the wording of the Scottish Government advice and rules. We have Protection Levels rather than Restriction levels. Clever psychology?
Make the best of it!
Whyever not? What would be the point of making the worst of it after all.
I hope the list was of interest to you, and maybe even helped you make it through.
Now December is about taming a robin.....
